I’m back after a long blogging hiatus to bring you my favorite images from Tracy and Cotton’s wedding. This is my second photo session with these guys, as I also captured their engagement photos on a historic farm earlier this year.
We begin their day in downtown Boulder at the Hotel Boulderado. When I first showed up to capture the getting ready preparations, I noticed a particular gag gift lying on the floor of the bridal suite. It turns out Cotton’s father presented him with a ball and chain the night before the wedding. Well I’m not a photographer to let a good prop go to waste.
The ceremony was held at the scenic Sunrise Amphitheater up on Flagstaff mountain high above Boulder.
After the ceremony, we took some time for creative wedding portraits before the reception at the Rembrandt Yard. We toured some of Boulder’s iconic locations, such as the Bandshell, the Boulder Creek Path, and the formerly-known-as-Trilogy wall.
This image is a Photoshop composite, just in case you were wondering.
I would normally be really sad that there was no wedding cake at this reception. In this case, there was reason for rejoice, and that reason was flambeed donuts! What could be more decadent than a donut grilled in butter? Well, let me tell you, a donut grilled in butter and covered in flaming booze, that’s what.
This image is not a Photoshop composite, just in case you were wondering. Sometimes, late at night, I delve into mad rocket scientist mode. This is one long exposure, with 3 flash exposures captured using the repeat mode on the flash. How many of you photographers out there have ever used that feature?
Some wedding photographers believe that they need to be like little mice at a wedding, barely seen and never heard. Those photographers clearly don’t know how to party.
Final shot of the night … Tracy and Cotton rocking their reception on the top floor of the Rembrandt Yard. I went the extra mile and stood out in the street in the rain to get this shot! That’s my dedication to the craft, always going the distance to provide my clients with unique images and captured moments that they will cherish forever. Thanks guys, it was a fabulous day and a memorable party.
